ON Semiconductor, driving energy efficiency innovations, will be exhibiting highlights from its expansive range of solutions relating to the Internet of Things (IoT) at the Embedded World conference (held in Nuremberg Messe between 23rd and 25th February). Visitors may experience interactive and informative demos at the company’s booth (5.178).
ON Semiconductor will demonstrate the new NB3H63143G small form factor, low power, low cost one-time programmable (OTP) clock generator, a member of the OmniClock family of devices that support any output frequency from 8 kHz to 200 MHz, in addition to offering a rich feature set and utmost operational flexibility. OmniClock generators have three single-ended clock outputs (LVCMOS/LVTTL), two of which can be combined into a differential output (LVPECL/LVDS/HCSL/CML), allowing designers to replace multiple crystals and/or oscillators, reducing overall system cost. The devices are available in a 3x3mm QFN 16 package which integrates three individual output enable (OE) pins as well as three individual output voltage (VDDO) pins and a smaller 2x2mm DFN 8 package for applications with little available board space.
“The OmniClock family offers the most features and flexibility of any programmable clock devices available in the market today,” said Prescott Sakai, director of ON Semiconductor’s timing products business unit. “They enable customers to meet their system’s low power requirements, while at the same time substantially simplifying board design and the overall system bill-of-materials.”
During Embedded World, one demonstration will present the NB3H63143G OmniClock generator providing a 19.2 MHz clock to the AR1820HS 18 megapixel image sensor, a 48 MHz clock to the AP1302 imaging co-processor, and a 19.2 MHz clock to a USB controller. Another demonstration will show how the OmniClock generator can change the output frequency and the spread spectrum modulation on the output frequency in real time.
Introduced in order to facilitate greater use of video in IoT systems, the MatrixCam™ video development kit (VDK) will also be on display. The compact, low power, 1080p camera solution is capable of streaming video over Wi-Fi or Ethernet connections. It supports smart operation, with wake-up initiated via either Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) or motion detection through its built-in PIR sensor.
To support the connectivity that will be vital to next generation applications like IoT, ON Semiconductor will also be displaying its latest wireless devices. The NCS36510 is highly integrated system-on-chip (SoC) for the implementation of secure wireless networks with the minimum of external components. It incorporates a 2.4 GHz IEEE 802.15.4-2006 compliant transceiver, a 32-bit ARM® Cortex®-M3 microprocessor, a true random number generator, plus RAM and Flash memory resources. The AX5043 narrowband, ultra-low power RF transceiver supports frequency-shift keying (FSK) and amplitude-shift keying (ASK) modulation. It delivers 16 decibels-milliwatt (dBm) of output power and -136 dBm sensitivity at 100 bits per second (bps) FSK.
Other demonstrations will include smart passive sensors, Sigfox™ functionality, BLDC motor control and touch level sensing.
“There are many possibilities for IoT and so far the industry has just started to fully explore them,” explains Ryan Cameron, vice president, industrial and timing products at ON Semiconductor. “By offering a wealth of hardware for IoT implementation, including microcontrollers, RF transceivers, camera systems and clock generators, we are enabling design engineers to take their ideas on IoT systems from the concept phase and make them a reality.”
